Advantages of a Vinyl Liner Pool
- Time - Construction methods allow for speedy installation, having your family swimming sooner than you'd think possible. The liner's easy-to-clean surface saves time and energy maintaining your pool.
- Money - Initial costs are typically less than that of other options. The vinyl is non-porous and treated to be resistant to algae, mold, mildew, and bacteria. . . requiring less chemical use and saving on annual upkeep and expenses.
- Choices - Vinyl liners have the greatest variety of colors and patterns. You can choose any shape, size, or depth. Designs can accommodate various water features, such as spas or waterfalls, to coordinate with your backyard. You can truly plan a pool and recreation area to reflect your personality.
- Comfort - The surface texture is smooth, non-slip, non-abrasive and soft to the touch. It won't scratch skin, swimwear, pool floats or toys.
- Quality - Material is strong and durable with time-tested construction methods. Cardinal's pool wall structures are backed by a lifetime warranty.
